Piloting a Circularity Solution in E-commerce

Piloting a Circularity Solution in E-commerce

AMSTERDAM/BERLIN – A new pilot project orchestrated by Fashion for Good, together with Zalando and circular.fashion, an innovator from the Fashion for Good Accelerator Programme, launches today to test their circularity.ID at scale; a traceability solution that increases the resale and recycling opportunities for clothing. The current linear system is the root cause of the fashion industry’s immense environmental footprint: more than 70% of garments are thrown away due to style preference rather than quality and less than 1% of garments are recycled into new clothing. Integrating circularity.ID into products enables companies to have a transparent flow of information between material suppliers, brands, consumers and recyclers, facilitating garment sorting for reuse or recycling and further driving circularity in the e-commerce sector.
